jasimo: In California (and elsewhere, I understand) you can save up leave and sick time and have it counted toward your pension. (For example: Add six months of sick leave/vacation time to annual salary to determine pension.)So you have things like ex-librarians getting over 100k pensions.

I don't know from California's system, but usually school employees have no way to wangle a six-figure pension because even at an upper-five-figure salary there's no way to pad out a teacher or librarian's overtime the way it's possible to do so for paid cops and firefighters, and it's very rare that a teacher retires on "disability" the way a cop or firefighter can.

I used quotes around 'disability' there because my state has had a really, really wide definition of the term - basically, you could have had a wicked case of gas from eating at a Taco Bell once, and that'll be good to qualify you.

Teacher pensions aren't what's farking the pension system - look to the cops and firefighters and anybody else where there's a round-the-clock schedule in effect, like mass transit. A cop making $60K/yr can work shiatloads of overtime his last three years and wind up being paid a $100K pension starting in their 40's. The LIRR in New York had a scam going where over 90% of their workers were retiring on disability for a while.
